Leerdoelen People who have succesfully completed their MA dissertation possess:
1) The ability to write on a specialist topic in some depth and with some originality;
2) Masters-level comprehension of the material;
3) The ability to form an interesting and persuasive argument or to answer a research question using an appropriate research methodology;
4) Research and bibliographical skills;
5) Independent learning (e.g. choosing and researching the topic).
Omschrijving Students meet during the first 6 weeks of the semester as part of so-called thesis workshops to develop a research proposal. They will report on background reading and discuss their research question and the design of their study. During the second half of the semester, students work independently on a coherent and well-argued written account of research based on a clearly defined problem related to the field of L2 learning or teaching. They do so under the supervision of a staff member of Applied Linguisitcs. At the end of the semester, students will give a 20-minute presentation on their findings as part of a student conference.
